good advice in the earlier post.
when loosening the 4 fairing support bolts, not the location of the washers- if the fenders washers are dished or warped, replace them.
also the windscreen has the 2 lower bolts as well so a total of 7 bolts for the windscreen. an extra set of hands is helpful when doing this operation.
the chrome strip which holds the windscreen bolts can scratch so mask the area with tape, coming off and going back on.
if the clips on the bolts are loose, any auto parts store will have suitable replacements
the 95 fairing was such a pain to remove that I kept a list of the stuff I wanted to do inside the fairing- so that I could do a bunch of stuff at once, such as:
headphone jack wired into stereo
relay packs for the headlight hi/lo and spots ( wiring into the battery to take the load off the ign switch)
change out inst. bulbs for new
